Samsung TX100 convertible tablet could be coming soon
The Samsung TX100 sliding laptop, otherwise known as the Series 7, could soon be available if online retailers are correct.
Retail site Amazon reportedly listed the hybrid PC earlier this Monday, only to be taken down hours later. Previous reports indicated a launch price of $699, but the now absent listing had the laptop for $649. It is possible that a model with higher SSD capacity could be offered for the $50 price premium. Another electronics retail site, ProVantage, is still listing the Samsung notebook as available for $662 as of this writing, but whether or not the notebook would actually ship without delay is another story.
Officially, Samsung has yet to announce an exact release date of the Series 7 for the U.S. other than a vague and already late March window. Therefore, seeing the notebook leaked onto online retailers could hopefully be indicating an announcement in the near future.
First revealed at this year’s CES, the 10.1-inch Series 7 will sport a slide-out QWERTY keyboard and touchpad, similar to the Dell Inspiron Duo. Internally, the hardware will include a 1366x768 resolution screen, 1.5GHz dual-core Atom Z670 Oak Trail CPU, 2GB RAM, 32GB or 64 GB SDD, front and rear caermas, HDMI-out, and will run Windows 7 Home Premium. At only 2.2 pounds (0.99kg) and 0.8-inches (2.03cm) thick, this hybrid tablet/netbook is looking to be a practical jack-of-all-trades when released.
